Audience Reviews for Orange Is the New Black: Season 3

  • Jul 31, 2022
    This season is really bad. I hope they finally get rid of Laura P. - I can't stand her fake eyebrows
  • Jan 14, 2021
    Thought the first 2 series were good, some great characters, but series 3 seemed to have lost the plot, I know thus is a female prison, but all the lesbian sex detracts from the story lines, its almost like the writer or producer has some sort of fetish for this.
  • Oct 09, 2019
    Orange Is The New Black routinely pays homage to its form, by referencing books throughout the entire Netflix original series. After the first season, the show heavily diverges from the truth of the memoir it was based on, though the show still makes an effort to honor books by including them in the characters lives. Not only do inmates rely on story to get through their incarceration, but their incarceration becomes a story (ie. Orange Is The New Black: A Memoir by Piper Kerman). OITNB may weave a tall tale, but a tale that is rooted in truth. Although the lives of Chapman and the other inmates depicted on the show are fictitious, they are based on real people in true situations. The show brings to light real issues that exist within the prison system, and educates us while entertaining us. Image result for oitnb standing on tables the animals The show dramatizes and exaggerates the realities of prison riots, and idealizes an outcome that could benefit the entire prison system. By grouping all of the worst-case scenarios in a Murphys-Law sort of way, the show educates people about prison life, laws, and serves as a sort of guide on How-To avoid prison.

    still skipping some scenes and watching fast mostly, but the story is good and i love stella (1 viewing)
  • Oct 28, 2017
    Orange Is The New Black Season 3 brings the witty humour and loveable characters that some of today's comedy shows lack with amazing performances from Dascha Polanco To Laura Prepon and the list goes on
  • Jun 28, 2017
    Well they've done it again and I have to wait until next summer to binge watch it.
  • May 31, 2017
    Remarkable ensemble cast, writing and social message make this series one of the best of recent times.
  • Mar 07, 2017
    And more of the same garbage
  • Dec 30, 2016
    This season wasn'the terrible, but I started to lose interest. I wasn't planning on continuing with the show. Between season 3 and season 4, I met my wonderful girlfriend, who was into the show. She was excited for season 4, so I got back into it. I'm so glad I did, because season 4 is the best so far.
  • Dec 05, 2016
    I'm currently going through a Netflix binge on OITNB and I love it for the most part, I'm only onto season three so I've still got quite a few episodes left to see - I hope the Piper/Alex thing dies soon - it's become really tedious, The less I see of Piper I prefer TBH, id rather see more of the other inmates who seem to have more depth and character.
